Foster Document Series
Picking up where Architecture in Detail left off, this series aims to document all of Foster + Partners’ most significant buildings in monograph form. Each small-format book contains sketches, drawings, models, photographs and technical data, allowing every aspect of the project to be explored – from the first design sketches, through design development, to patterns of use in the finished building.
